TALLAHASSEE (FLV) – Gov. Ron DeSantis announced he is awarding more than $22 million for community development projects in 10 Florida communities under the Community Development Block Grant – CV program.

10 Florida communities will receive funding to meet infrastructure needs for residents.

“This $22 million in awards will help 10 communities meet their infrastructure needs and provide long-term services for their residents for years to come,” DeSantis said.

“Governor DeSantis continues to champion community development initiatives, and I am proud to stand with him to support these critical investments that support resiliency in Florida communities,” DEO Secretary Dane Eagle said. “I look forward to seeing the positive impact that these funds will make in the lives of Floridians and the communities where they live and work.”

The programs were created to primely benefit disadvantaged Florida communities of low-to-moderate income residents through workforce housing, training, and sustainability, along with broadband infrastructure and planning. The funds came from the federal government from the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
